So farewell then, Raymond Baxter (2)

Tonight's BBC2 tribute to Raymond Baxter was superb. It did justice to the extraordinary range and volume of output of one of the twentieth century's foremost broadcasters.

The programme amply displayed the vast and colourful range of broadcasts by Baxter. His enthusiasm, gravitas and unflappability were exceptional. His ability to poke fun at himself (e.g appearing in string underwear on the Goodies) completed the picture of a remarkable British gentleman.
